ARROW Front Cover

I've been teasing people with this all morning on Twitter, so now that I've finally got the high-res image from my UK editor, it's time to pony up and share it with the rest of the world.

Meet Rhosmari, the heroine of Arrow, which will be released by Orchard Books UK on 6 January 2011. Less than six months away now...

I am ridiculously excited about this book. And also nervous. I hope everyone will like it!

(You can find the high-res image here, if you want a better look at Rhosmari's face. And her epic hair, which I adore. Brown faeries FTW!)

Wayfarer Cover

An earlier version of this cover is up already as part of the HarperCollins Summer 2010 Catalog entry for Wayfarer, but I thought it would be nice to post the more up-to-date version. So here it is! Just click to embiggen if you want more detail.

And here's the jacket copy to go with it:
The faeries of the Oak are dying, and it’s up to a lone faery named Linden to find a way to restore their magic. Linden travels bravely into dangerous new territory, where she enlists the help of an unlikely friend—a human named Timothy. Soon they discover something much worse than the Oakenfolk’s loss of magic: a potent evil that threatens the fate of all faeries. In a fevered, desperate chase across the country, Timothy and Linden risk their lives to seek an ancient power before it’s too late to save everyone they love.

R. J. Anderson has artfully crafted a world of stunning magic, thrilling adventure, and delicate beauty, where a girl far from home must defeat the pervasive evil befalling her beloved faery realm.

The official publication date for Wayfarer is April 27, 2010.
I am so excited. I love this cover SO MUCH. (Brian Froud! Drew my character just for this book! Eeeeee!) So without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to Linden, the heroine of Rebel (a.k.a. Wayfarer in the US):

'If we die, we die. But we will not surrender the Oak to you without a fight.' )

Her messy hair and her pigeon toes and the 80's-looking bomber jacket fill me with squee.
I am officially allowed to share this now. So:


The artist responsible for this thing of beauty is Melanie Delon. And I am very, very pleased with how it came out. So different from my UK cover, and yet so right in its own way. *wriggles with happiness*
